The Leicester Handyman for Leicestershire
John Holland
Professional Handyman

"No Job Too Small or Too Challenging"
We first became acquainted with John Holland of Why DIY when he did work for the estate agent on the rental property we were living in. He was always courteous and efficient and, unlike some of the other services the agency used, he got the job done well and cleaned up after himself. When we became homeowners, we immediately thought of John for some of the small projects that needed to be done to improve our new home. It's even more important to us now that we're spending our own money on decorating and repairs that he does a good job at the right price for us. Already we've had him in to install shelves and other fittings. He works with our schedule and makes sure to leave a room as clean as can be after he's done any drilling or other messy work. It's such a relief to know we have someone reliable to call in for the jobs we don't have the time or skill to do!

As an underfloor heating specialist with a very good reputation and very high standards, we only use the best sub contractors. John is not only amazing. His customer service skills are second to none and this puts myself and clients at ease. The best in Leicester.

I have known John for the past 4 years as he has worked for Skiworld as a Maintenance / Driver for the winter seasons 2002-2006. I was Johns direct line manager for his first 2 seasons being the resort manager for Skiworld in Meribel. During his seasons as a Maintenance / Driver, John proved to be a reliable and integral member of the resort team. He was a competent driver, resourceful and able to do his job independently and deal with most issues that arose himself. During his first season, John was awarded Skiworlds Employee of the month award, meaning he was voted as the hardest working employee that month by the resort management team. In the winter season 2005-06, John worked as a Resort Representative for Skiworld in Meribel and was responsible for managing 4 chalets and a small team of staff. John then continued work with Skiworld after the season and throughout the summer 2006 working on our Summer maintenance team. John proved to be extremely capable and adapted extremely well to both these challenging roles. During his time with Skiworld, John proved himself to be very popular with both guests and other staff members in the resort team. He had a good manner with his chalet guests when working as a resort representative, and was helpful and friendly at all times, and guests were always complimentary about John. Despite being 1 of a large resort team in Meribel, John was liked by everyone and was a central member of the team. He was always on hand to help out being flexible in his work and resourceful where necessary. From a social perspective he was always enthusiastic and involved in resort events which helped to keep staff morale at a high working level. From a professional perspective, John is hard-working, reliable and proficient at anything he puts his mind to. One Of Leicesters best!
